Exclusively providing a Thunderbolt™/NAS/iSCSI SAN triple solution, the TVS-1282T3 features four Thunderbolt™ 3 ports to enable seamless collaboration between up to four Mac® and Windows® devices. Coupled with its higher bandwidth to smooth 4K video transfer and online editing, the TVS-1282T3 is a perfect match for Thunderbolt-equipped Mac® and Windows® users for 4K workflows, file storage and high-speed sharing. The TVS-1282T3 leverages 7th Generation Intel® 14nm multi-core processors and was designed around the concept of tiered storage, application-based partitioning and network traffic distribution, providing exceptional performance to fulfill critical tasks.
1. Requires MacOS Sierra 10.12.3 (or later) for using Thunderbolt connection on Mac.
2. Thunderbolt 3 reaches the maximum theoretical transfer rate of 40 Gigabits per second. Actual performance may vary due to hardware/software limitations and usage environment.
3. Thunderbolt 3 (40 Gbps) doubles its theoretical potential for speed when compared to Thunderbolt 2 (20 Gbps). This results in the TVS-1282T3’s file transfer speed increasing from 900 MB/s to 1,600 MB/s.
The TVS-1282T3 is a perfect match for Thunderbolt™ 3-capable MacBook Pro®, and is backward-compatible with Mac Pro® and iMac® featuring Thunderbolt™ 2 via Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 converter. The higher bandwidth is especially suited for creative professionals and enthusiasts from photographers, filmmakers to graphic designers who focus more on 4K or 3D workflows. The latest Final Cut Pro® X 10.3 adds support for SMB protocol, allowing you to easily store files in the TVS-1282T3 and share files with Windows®, and other devices using Thunderbolt™, 10GbE or 1GbE connection. Up to 4 Thunderbolt™ devices can connect to the TVS-1282T3 to process real-time video editing simultaneously without impacting NAS performance, while 4K videos can be directly displayed using the TVS-1282T3’s HDMI output. Coupled with its large capacity potential, the TVS-1282T3 provides an ideal storage solution with unmatched performance for high-resolution file storage and I/O-intensive tasks to increase productivity in multi-workstation environments.
Note: Final Cut Pro X 10.3 (and later) supports file sharing using Samba on NAS
The advanced hardware design of TVS-1282T3 can facilitate optimized storage deployment based on different usage scenarios.
QNAP’s Qtier Technology empowers the TVS-1282T3 with Auto Tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency across M.2 SSD, SSD and SATA drives. With Auto Tiering, the TVS-1282T3 can automatically move frequently-used “hot” data to high-performance storage tiers and less-accessed “cold” data to lower-cost, higher-capacity drives, making the TVS-1282T3 an extremely efficient shared resource. Qtier now supports “On Demand Allocation Priority”, providing customizable flexibility to arrange tiered storage suited for your system environments and application demands.
The TVS-1282T3 comes with three HDMI ports (4K 30hz output) for using three monitors in either “duplicated” or “extended” desktop configuration*. You can connect the TVS-1282T3 to a HDTV or A/V receiver and use the media player in HybridDesk Station (HD Station) to enjoy rich media content and 4K videos. HD Station supports multi-tasking and user authentication so only authorized users can access the stored data. Besides using the bundled remote control, you can also turn your mobile devices into remote controls by installing the Qremote app to control HD Station. You can customize the actions of individual buttons of your QNAP remote control using QButton. From playing music, to viewing surveillance feeds in Surveillance Station, to shutting down or restarting the NAS, everyday and common tasks can be just a button press away with QButton.
* Linux Station must be installed from the App Center.
The intuitive QTS features a modern flat design to help you manage QNAP NAS easily. QTS provides an intelligent desktop, graphical dashboard, drag-n-drop icons and grouped shortcuts to make storage and file management extremely simple. You can even open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater operating efficiency. The built-in App Center contains install-on-demand apps to provide potentially limitless potential for the NAS.
The TVS-1282T3 offers flexible backup solutions for Windows® and Mac® users, Volume/LUN snapshots (block-based LUN* and file-based LUN), Folder snapshot, Snapshot Replica and Clone. It also supports Hybrid Backup Sync that consolidates backup, restoration and synchronization functions (using RTRR, rsync, FTP, CIFS/SMB) for easily transferring data to local, remote and cloud storage spaces as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan.
* Up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN, and a maximum 1,024 snapshots per NAS. It is recommended to use block-based LUN snapshots.
